    As you already know, we’re currently running a Buy 3, get 1 Free Promo with our friends over at AlphaDraft, but we thought it would be fun to throw in another event on top of it!

    We decided to run a Hearthstone tournament a few months ago when we discovered the overlap between Hearthstone players and Daily Fantasy players, and it was a big hit. I’ve had people asking me ever since when we were planning on running another one, and I’m happy to say that the wait is over!

    This tournament will be run on Battlefy, and will be a Swiss format, with a cut to the top 4 (or more, depending on the number of players we get). After the cut, we’ll play single elimination brackets to determine the overall winner.

    Not familiar with Hearthstone? It’s a free to play digital card game. Check it out here to get in on the fun!

    The winner will receive free NFL incentives for the upcoming season (a $100 value)! If you already have NFL incentives, you can pick any other site (or sport) and we’ll add that package for you instead. Other prizes will include Ten $10 WFEC Qualifier Tickets from AlphaDraft, as well as a bunch of RG swag (hoodies and hats). The exact distribution of the prizes will also depend on the number of participants sign up.

    Sign up for the RotoGrinders Hearthstone Open #2 Here!

    The tournament will be run in 48 hour rounds, so that everyone can participate regardless of schedule. If you have any questions, you can post them here or reach me on Twitter @CruzinToVictry.

    See you at the Hearth!

    Super excited for this! I had just started playing Hearthstone when we had the first tournament and was an easy win for my opponents. Hoping to put up more of a fight this time :)

    Play plenty of HS, but haven’t been in a real tourney. Pretty sure that I’m down, but please break down “This tournament will be run on Battlefy, and will be a Swiss format” a little more for my newb self.

    Good call, I should have been a bit more clear on that one.

    Battlefy is just the website that hosts the brackets for us. You’ll be directed there when you click on the sign up link above. Essentially it creates the matchups, pairs people, and sends notifications so you can contact each other and add each other in game. Then you play out your games and report the results back on the Battlefy site.

    As for Swiss, this is just an alternative to the single elimination bracket style. Instead of a premade bracket, each round will be generated after the previous round finishes. The site will pair you up with someone who has the same record as you. The benefit here is that everyone gets to participate in the whole tournament and one loss doesn’t boot you from the whole thing. After a number of rounds, we make a cut to the top 4 or 8 and play a bracket from there to determine overall winners.

    Hope that makes sense, but let me know if you have any other questions!

    You select your class through the Battlefy software. —- Brian will have you manually submit the specific decklists prior to the tourney (that process isn’t up yet)

    We have to inform our opponents of our deck beforehand? Can you elaborate?

    So you have to specify which classes you’re using when you register, and that is all your opponent will know. We’re going to have people send in screen shots of their decklists to an admin, but your opponent will never see it. It’s simply to make sure no one made changes to their decks after getting further into the tournament.

    We haven’t fully decided how best to gather the screen shots, but we’ll probably just have everyone email them in. Details to come!

    Should be fun, can’t wait :)

    How will the new adventure(aug. 11) be handled?

    Good question. So the way the adventure works is that they release 1 wing (and therefore a small subset of cards) each week until they’re all out. Because of that, and because we’re starting before it releases, we’re not going to allow cards from that set.

    I’m also going to post details about deck submission on Battlefy later today. Looking forward to getting started!

    I actually just updated the home page for that. The Google doc caused more issues than it helped last time, so we’ll just be emailing decklists this time around.

    So the site says brackets will be made at 7pm EST. But I just realized that I have a softball game tonight, so I’ll be sure to post them right after that!
